Wine 1.7.5 was released today but if you were hoping it would feature the Direct3D command stream improvements, you will sadly be let down.

Wine 1.7.5 is just the latest bi-weekly development release of Wine, but compared to the past few development versions there is less to get excited over for habitual upgraders.

Wine 1.7.5 features support for registration-free COM using activation contexts, improved support for simulated bold fonts, Unicode 6.3 integration, better support for typelib registration on 64-bit platforms, and various bug-fixes. There's 30 official bug-fixes in this latest release.

For more details on Wine 1.7.5 visit WineHQ.org.
